Two-Tone Shoes: The Black & White Market

It may be summer, the time when we indulge in shock-and-awe neons and rainbow prints, but who needs color when you’ve got contrast?

Crystal Embellished Summer Shoes: Twinkle Toes

Crystal Embellished Summer Shoes: Twinkle Toes

What’s summer without the fun? That includes all things sparkly. Even if you’re not one to let it shine, summer is the season to let loose and break all rules.

Summer Shoe Essentials

Summer Shoe Essentials: Rising to the Occasion

Unless you live in a warmer climate like Cali, you spend a nice chunk of the year unable to wear sandals, espadrilles, and other summer shoes. Now that the season is finally upon us, have fun with it! Playful beach ball prints, cork wedges…these are the types of pieces you want to indulge in. I’ve sorted all my favorite essentials into categories, a nice reminder of how to budget to get what we really need – and want!

Robert Clergerie x MATCHESFASHION.COM: Summer, Kind of Wonderful

MATCHESFASHION.COM has just launched a summer capsule collection with one of my longtime favorite shoe brands – Robert Clergerie. The comfort level is epic, and with the Parisian label currently under the creative direction of Roland Mouret, I’ve only been loving it more!

Frugal Friday

Frugal Friday: Castañer Espadrilles

One of my favorite summertime buys is the espadrille, and well-priced, completely adorable Castañer is a staple in my closet. The quality is mid-range, which is all you need in this kind of shoe. They tend to get a little roughed up on beachy vacations anyway. These look great and can be lived in without guilt.

Maison Martin Margiela Thigh High Wedge Boot

Maison Martin Margiela Thigh High Boots: A Leg Up

Okay, thigh high is almost an understatement here. These are basically pants (albeit ones that require a nice dress and in spite of what some forgetful starlets think, a pair of panties!). Leave it to Maison Martin Margiela to have us questioning whether shoes are pants or pants are shoes.

Gucci Caroline Crystal-Band Espadrille

Gucci Caroline Crystal-Band Espadrille: Sweet Caroline

I’m ready to start shopping for summer, and the first item on my list is always the same – espadrille wedges. I wear them from February to October in LA (sporting them during the holidays wouldn’t feel right, even at 72 degrees!). They are my favorite seasonal essentials, so beloved that I decided this year I must find a pair that can be worn all day and night – casually while the sun’s still out, then dressed up for the evening.

UGG Alternatives: Let It Snow!

Lately my posts have been centered around a ski trip I just took. I absolutely hate UGGs and refuse to wear them, whether it’s 90 degrees outside (what are those women thinking??) or snowing. But falling on icy roads in mountain-high heels? Not so fun. There has to be another way, and that is the rubber/lug sole route!
